…halves. Optimism in the face of playing the league leaders lasted as long as we though Dembele and Bale’s names would be on the team sheet. Once they were omitted for separate reasons – for Bale I’m reminded of the beginning of David Lee Roth’s “Yankee Rose” video (right) in the grocery shop where the […]
...they were bitching about him not doing. With Spurs on a winning run, one of their best starts to a Premier League season, the Old Trafford hoodoo done and dusted and the players themselves talking about how happy they are the media are scrambling for something to have a go at Andre Villas-Boas with.
...through Spurs. You could visible see all the hatred the Spurs' players feel for Andre Villas-Boas during the 90 minutes, plus “insulting” time added on, at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
...negatives. Spurs may have played poorly, AVB may have made the wrong decisions but things were corrected and three points were won.
...went in. As Spurs put three past Reading each one of the three a savage blow to their campaign to run AVB out of town. Three games to save his career, that went well for them didn't it.
...it's a disaster. How could he lose his first competitive game in charge away to a team that were fighting for a top 4 position last season and kept all their major players from that campaign.
...coming!! In one of the worst kept secrets in football, Spurs finally announce André Villas-Boas as the new head coach and the media can't wait to stick the boot in.
...backfired. If Harry Redknapp hadn't indulge in so much Machiavellian scheming would he still be the Spurs boss or was that dramatic loss of form too much?
...back. It was in Spurs hands to claim third place in the Premier League, after the Woolwich scum lost points at home, but again they blew it as 'Arry dithered.
...track. In less than half a minute Spurs might have rescued the season last night at Bolton, for their first away win at the Reebok stadium.
…the F.A. Poor old ‘Arry, he finally sees Spurs actually win a game and the F.A. go and piss all over his chips by announcing Roy Hodgson is their only choice for his job. More about Woy’s about bloody time later, first there’s an actual Spurs win. Well the day started with good news as […]
...on gardening leave. It's what's now required but it can't happen because Levy and Spurs wouldn't receive anything from the F.A. for him.
...now. Overseeing a tactical masterclass of ineptness, watching his team in white and blue fall to pieces while the officials make one of the most god awful calls in the game. What better qualifications can a man have to get the England job?
...Norwich? As 'Arry serenely Keggie Keegle's the season is it the the two games against Norwich that are going to be the major factors in what should have been a cruise turning into a battle?
...statistics. Possession and passing success have become king of late but if they lead to nothing other than stat padding what is the point?
